  • Effects of static magnetic fields on the enteropathogenic Escherichia coli

    Effects of static magnetic fields on the enteropathogenic Escherichia coli

    Measured values of SMF strength as a function of the position in the vicinity of the zone in which cell culture was exposed to SMF. In the three cases, (A) 53 mT, (B) 107 mT, and (C) 400 mT, SMF ranges have been marked with different colors. As can be observed, at the center zone SMF gradient was practically null.

  • Millimeter-wave emissivity as a metric for the non-contact diagnosis of human skin conditions

    Millimeter‐wave emissivity as a metric for the non‐contact diagnosis of human skin conditions

    In the experimental set-up radiometric emission at 95 GHz is collected by a moveable horn antenna (3) at positions: A to measure a hot calibration source (1), B to measure skin (5), and C to measure cold calibration source (2). A thermocouple (4) is used to measure thermodynamic temperature of skin, a digital voltmeter (8) is used to measure output voltage of calibration sources and skin. The horn antenna connected through a waveguide circulator (6) to a radiometer (7) that consists of low noise amplifier and detector.

  • Thermal mapping on male genital and skin tissues of laptop thermal sources and electromagnetic interaction

    Thermal mapping on male genital and skin tissues of laptop thermal sources and electromagnetic interaction

    (a) Heterogeneous and (b) homogenous models.

  • Influence of 340 mT static magnetic field on germination potential and mid-infrared spectrum of wheat

    Influence of 340 mT static magnetic field on germination potential and mid‐infrared spectrum of wheat

    Electromagnet and magnetic field within its gap. Pole diameter was 10 cm and gap between poles was adjusted to 2 cm. Magnetic field in the center was chosen to be 340 mT, which is about one half of 675 mT being the maximal magnetic induction that corresponds to chosen gap size. Tap water running through green hoses was used to cool outer surfaces of coils in order to eliminate possible temperature increase in experimental volume. Numerically simulated magnetic field is given in the 2 ×10 cm2 and 10 ×10 cm2 regions in horizontal and vertical planes through the gap center, respectively, along with placement of seeds during exposure in four plastic vials. Field within the experimental volume can be considered to be homogeneous.

  • Variation in the dielectric properties of freshly excised colorectal cancerous tissues at different tumor stages

    Variation in the dielectric properties of freshly excised colorectal cancerous tissues at different tumor stages

    (a) Digital photograph showing freshly excised colorectal cancerous nidus after specimen processing. (b) Microscopic view of typical colorectal cancerous tissue (hematoxylin and eosin stain; original magnification, ×100).

  • Biological effects related to geomagnetic activity and possible mechanisms

    Biological effects related to geomagnetic activity and possible mechanisms

    Geomagnetic activity recorded on magnetograms (adapted from Krylov et al. []). Broadband signal of a geomagnetic storm relative to quiet geomagnetic field along X (a), Y (b), and Z (c) axes. Green area corresponds to initial phase, pink area to main phase, and violet area to recovery phase of the geomagnetic storm. This signal recorded along X axes during the approximately 30 min interval of the geomagnetic storm (d) and its constituents is as follows: slow changes in geomagnetic field in the range of 0–0.001 Hz (e), fluctuations of geomagnetic field in the range of 0.001–5 Hz (f), and Pc1-pulsations (g).
